I just found a furniture company going out of business about two hours from here. They have SEVERAL Cabinet saws, ten inch jointer’s, shapers lathes, etc etc etc. All Delta, Powermatic, Jet and a few brands I am not familiar with like Lobo. The only problem is, they are all three phase. How much does it cost on average to replace a three phase 2hp to 5 hp motors with single phase 220 of the same horse power ? Example, If I bought a 10 inch powermatic jointer with a 3 phase 2 hp motor for $350, How much would a new 2 hp 220 motor cost for it ?
Anyone have a clue ? I was actually thinking of buying a few items both for my remodel business and for my shop and switching out the motors, but do not wish to have a heart attack when I go to replace the motors.
